I'm sure a little chat with the neighbours at Buckfastleigh could produce something!
Thanks to NP at its best I enjoyed L94 + 75014 on the 14.15 Pgn to Kingswear and ret.
Noisy!! Pannier in front on the way back and a storming climb.
Passing 7827 meant today 3 locos were working hard on a high frequency service.
As usual very friendly staff!
I didn't expexc haulage behind L94 in Paignton- it regularly passed my school in Hammersmith and I saw it very frequently at K O or other places on the Underground!
Enjoy it whilst you can........WITH A BRILLIANT visitor to the SDR rumoured I suspect S Devon will be especially good this summer ! Plus a paddle boat....... Oh and the TBE/Par etc
Too early to predict if the pannier might get a turn to face smokebox to dartmouth for the beer festival ?
Do you know what is running the weekend services at all?
4277 is running the scheduled services this weekend.
46100 is also visiting the line on Saturday, with RTC's "Dartmouth Express".
Had a lovely trip behind Hercules today, shame its the last year of her boiler ticket (4277 and 5239 will be missed).
Got a fleeting glimpse of Braveheart at Churston, hoping she's in steam on my next visit. Great job on the overhaul.
The devonbelle was being worked on in Paignton shed, any chance it will be seen again this year?
If your thinking of a loco from The GWRS grouping neighbor. sounds like it could be off,failed before leaving its home railway
Is the loco roster for next weekend known yet?
L94 & 75014 Saturday.
The class 25 will be out fri & sat evenings from the 17:15 train.
How much are railway rover tickets?
Looking at popping down Saturday to make the most of the 2 train running. Any idea on locos in use?
75014 & 4277 are rostered next Saturday.
Is the Dartmouth railway any good for getting to the Torbay steam fair
You can catch the train to churston, it's then a 2 minute walk up the road towards brixham.
There any extra services for this weekend of steam fair
No, just the orange 2 train service Friday & Saturday. Green timetable with 75014 on Sunday.
Would anyone know how much Paignton-churston return is. Thxs
I visited on Monday (75014 & 4277) and having bought a rtn to Kingswear for a trip with KC, had time for a rtn to Churston late afternoon - it costs £8:50.
Does anyone know when the pannier is planned to be used over the coming weeks? Also when does it head back to Tysley?
